Hey Hugh, No real question...just dropping in to thank you for sticking to your guns and getting "THE" deal. I'm so glad to see you, Bella, Coleen breaking down the walls. My sales are still too low to warrant such a deal but at least I know that it is at least possible...someday...if I can become a real boy.

In any case, I'm returning to self-publishing with "Hollow World." Even though the Riryia Revelations are selling well, Orbit passed on it because they said "Science fiction isn't selling well these days" and all I could think of is, "Tell that to Hugh Howey!" If you get to the Washington DC area, drop me a line and we'll lift a mug and complain about how screwed up publishing is.

Just saw you are coming to VA Festival of the books - we're gonna swing down. Shoot me an email ([email protected]) and we'll set something up.

I've just been "waiting" to return to SP. The traditional thing was good for me - but as you know...Oy vey those contracts ! Luckily for me, Robin has to deal with all that BS and I can just write.

On a side note...authors get groupies...damn...man, Robin keeps telling me that's only for rock stars ;-)

Well thanks! Two more coming out this summer/fall. I don't want to derail Hugh's IAmA talking about me - but I do appreciate you taking the time to say so.

Damn...Oh well. I hope to get a chance to meet you as well - Kindleboards Writer's Cafe is an amazing forum - and a lot of that credit goes to you.
